Neighbours asked to help in the crackdown on doorstep crime

Local people are being asked to look out for their neighbours to help crackdown on doorstep crime as part of a national campaign 'Good neighbours stop rogue traders'

Trading Standards officers from West Berkshire and Wokingham Trading Standards Service will be visiting community groups in the area to advise residents how they can take an active role in protecting neighbours who may be vulnerable to falling foul of doorstep scams. Examples include taking details of suspicious callers and contacting the police or Trading Standards to report any cold callers.

In West Berkshire the Trading Standards team has joined forces with the West Berkshire Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB) to put the national campaign messages out. Click HERE for more information.
